    Default Beware of the new iTunes 7.4 if you have custom ringtones

    Since they launched their own ringtone service, syncing with iTunes 7.4 will delete any custom ringtones you have installed by 3rd party.

    Just a heads up.

    Have you confirmed this?

    Do you mean every time a sync occurs, it looks in /var/root/Library/Ringtones and actually deletes what it didn't put there...?

    That's pretty low of Apple if true.


    UPDATE:

    I've just installed iTunes 7.4 under Mac OS X and performed an iPhone sync. All my ringtones are still there, no problem at all, but I had copied them there using SCP (SSH installed).

    OK: Ringtones copied manually to /var/root/Library/Ringtones/ or by using a file copy utility.

    REMOVED: Ringtones installed through iToner, iFuntastic, etc.

    Someone in the Simcloning forum said that they HAD done it and retained all their "sounds" whether this includes ringtones, I don't know!

    @ Mors

    I believe so... once activated it should stay activated... unless Apple target that specifically. And then most people would notice!!

    I have just synced my iPhone using 7.4 and it has erased all my custom ringtones aswell. I als used iToner to install my ringtones. Im guessing because iToner uses the official method of adding custom ringtones and places them in a different folder to the hacking method that Apple dosnt want anyone but themselves to be able to add ringtones. It seems though those ringtones that are placed in the default ringtones folder using a hacking method are left alone.

    Seems like it's an iToner specific problem. Since it's a commercial program, they should be working on an update.

    But you're on Hackint0sh... why aren't you hacking?!
